the channel. >> jennifer: kind of funny. i isn't know candidates were worried about fox news ratings, and it wasn't just paul ryan having difficulty with this issue. governor bob mcdonald today was also at a loss to explain this math. >> where is the mat and is mitt romney going to be undepressure to produce specifics. >> first that's a laughable question. the question is how do you get america back to work? what paul ryan just said on your clip, is you flatten the base -- you increase the number -- you reduce the number of deductions that are out there, and you expand -- you expand the base. >> jennifer: ahhhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh. it's a laughable question. what deductions will you close or eliminate? how will you pay for the plan? and when it's difficult to explain romney's tax plan because there is no explanation. he hasn't offered any specifics. all right. third issue, as i mentioned is this is what the debate is going to be on right? on the economy. now the romney memo says that mitt romney will champion manufacturing jobs and bring them back to our shores and
? >> we have one guy, mitt romney says let's lower the tax rate to 25%. we need that in america but that obama who lot of people don't like what it comes to that strategy. 28%. what is 3% among ceo tie-ins but he says 25% for manufacturing, industry. a lot of republicans don't like industrial policy. i am not saying you should or shouldn't agree with that or disagree but both of these candidates want to help manufacturing whether by industrial policy or more bigger government area or lower the rate. [talking over each other] cheryl: alan mulally would love it if it were 25%. stamping chicago back in may doing gangbuster business. mitt romney wants to do it but obama also wants to do it. the difference is things not in manufacturing. you get 25%, if we could get down to 25 this is going to work. i don't think you should politicize your investment portfolio. dave: no solution the opportunities. [talking over each other] dave: america's top c e os are more pessimistic than in years so why is there outlook dampening and what do they think will turn things around? president of the bu

(laughter) it's over ten years. romney and ryan will only be in office for eight of those. let president bachmann worry about it in 2020. that is what hindsight is for. but folks, just listen to this pit bull. >> how much would it cost. >> it's revenue neutral. >> i'm talking about the cut, we'll get to the deductions. >> the cut in tax rates is lower all american tax rate by 20%. >> how much does that cost. >> it's revenue neutral. >> stephen: okay, revenue neutral, chris. but for some reason wallace wouldn't take no answer for an answer. (laughter) jim? >> well, it's not revenue neutral unless you take away the deduction. >> let me just -- >> you haven't given me the math. >> well, i don't have-- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. >> stephen: great answer. (laughter) why-- (cheers and applause)
. the president's favorable rating meantime remains above the crucial 50% mark at 52%. mr. romney is close but still in negative territory at 49%. he enjoys an edge on handling the deficit and joblessness, but trails on virtually every other big issue, including medicare, taxes and foreign policy. keeping them honest, when it comes to some of those issues, both candidates have come up short either on specifics or credibility. issues like cutting taxes without ballooning the deficit or burdening the middle class. the romney campaign has been asked again and again for specifics. here's runningmate paul ryan just yesterday on fox news. >> there's been a traditional democrat and republican consensus lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base works. and you can -- >> i have to -- you haven't given me the math. >> well, i don't have -- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. >> chris wallace kept trying but came away empty-handed. he's not the only one. take a look. >> which of the deductions are you going to be willing to eliminate? which of the tax credits are you going to

have been waiting for romney to come hitting the growth agenda and low rate flat tax-and-spending reductions and the other ways of bringing the national debt down. i have not seen it. the 4 percent tax rate came out i thought he said he was proud of paying 14 percent and everyone else should pay 14 percent. i shouldn't be the only one paying 14 percent. he did not do it that way. i hope this time he does. if he does the growth message like ronald reagan, he could win the election but it has to be truly credible and not appear as though he is apologetic. >>neil: what i learned on fox business network talking to these two retired senators, they recognize how surprisingly easy it is just to talk about a democrat in the indicate of sam nunn, slowing down the growth of entitlements and from senator bennett, a republican, closing loop hes and credits that allow some not to pay taxes at all. ronald reagan would tell you, it is not a tax hike. however, we get so dog mattic and fixed in our positions we are piling up more to the debt because of this. >>guest: exactly. sam nunt

, favorable ratings. take a look at our numbers from yesterday. 52% had a favorable rating of the president, mitt romney's not that far off at 49%. what about the wing man, joe biden 47%, paul ryan 46%. all kind of in the same range. >> how often do we poll about the wing man? i rarely see the actual numbers separated for the vice presidential candidate. >> they face off next week. more numbers on them. >> and just lastly, while we look at these polls and hear a lot of people arguing about polls and they're skewed and they follow a narrative and the questions follow a narrative and that may or may not be true. historically, how accurate have polls been toward the election sf. >> i like to brag about our own cnn poll four years ago, we were pretty much spot-on on the popular vote between the president and mitt romney, i'm sorry, john mccain. but they're a reflection of how people feel right now. we still have five weeks to the election. >> it's nice to see you in person. >> great to be here. >> let's do this more often. >> i'll come up. >> appreciate it. >>> and quick reminder for you, as we
. the top selling newspaper in this country is the wall street journal. and that paper now has romney advisors writing for their op-ed page. the journal published 23 pieces from ten romney advisors without ever disclosing their ties to the campaign in the paper. and fox news which is the highest-rated cable news channel, they do the same with commentators acting as independent analysts. for more on the right-wing's claim of media bias. i'm joined by eric boehlert, senior fellow of media matters for america. he comes to us from new york. welcome back inside "the war room." >> thanks for having me. >> jennifer: do you think that the right-wing sort of denial of the polls -- we'll start there -- >> right. >> joy: has worked to rally their base? >> i guess. it's a pretty crummy way to try to win a national election. >> joy: when you don't have anything else, man. >> as chris christie said when you are complaining about the press, you are usually behind. i mean i'm paraphrasing. this is an outgrowth of the liberal media allegation. the press is out to get. republicans.
in the past. congress has a lower approval rating than the president or mitt romney at this point. you can do a certain extent of blaming congress, but he has to talk about his own vision or what he would do if he got congress to do it and then turn it back on romney, and say, what would he do? we haven't heard the specifics. bobbing and we'aving is one way to put it as chris did. he'll do all of that. we heard from the advisers they practice giving short answers, so let's see if he can do it in a minute ten. >> or he can do what congressman paul ryan did in the interview with fox news said, i don't have time to finish this out. good grief, people will get bored. i hear people say play up your natural weapons you have, and we know the president has his national weapons and so does mitt romney. what do you see as a high point or something effective for both of them. what are the president's natural weapons going in? >> foreign policy. if you said a couple years ago i'd sit here saying the democratic candidate's strong suit is foreign policy, that would take me by surprise. >> the first debate
are not. >> moderator: mr. cantor, let's talk about the fiscal cliff. business tax rates and rates such as the taxes on investment income. one approach endorsed by mitt romney calls for the lowering of individual rates and broad support in the elimination and reduction of existing tax exemption. on the other hand, letting these tax cuts expire on individuals and families making $200,000 in $250,000. what do you think is the best approach to individual tax rates that can help grow the economy and actually reduce the deficit? cantor: we do need to make sure that we are not raising taxes in this country. what's good for the country is to create jobs. back in the how we help others and get going again. that is how we get tax revenues into the federal government to help manage that data. so we don't want to raise taxes, but yes, we want to reform taxes. we want government conference of reform. we have a corporate tax rate that is the least competitive in the industrialized world. what does that mean? that means where companies are looking to locate or relocate, it is not always attracti
on this kind of a stage. >> oh! >> maybe he is more on home at the vegas stage. >> r rated hypnotists or two gay germans trying to make a white tiger disappear. >> monkey on a bicycle. well, if it is mitt romney's first time at the rodeo, governor obama believes he has an enormous advantage. >> the president is going to lose the first debate. >> he is just not a great debator. >> look whose feelings about barack obama came back, and i guess what happened in charlotte stayed in charlotte. >> when american markets broke down, who jump-started our engine! barack obama! and when america needed him most, who got us rolling again on the road to recovery? >> barack obama! >> let me ask you this, people, who couldn't get laid in a whore house with a fist full of hundreds? barack obama! >> that's my favorite am way presentation ever. >> all right, i get it time honored tradition to attach down expectations to make a slight win. >> here is great news for republicans, we have a candidate who is going to do extraordinarily well on wednesday night, oh (bleep) we have a runner! we have a runner! >> wh
in tomorrow's debate, mitt romney or president obama. could the unemployment rate be the october surprise that shakes things up in the election? and imagine flying the plane and your seat comes loose. it happened twice. we'll get right to it. we're 32 hours away from the first presidential debate. president obama and mitt romney taking the stage at the university of denver in colorado. a live picture. this inside that will. where the two men will face off for the first time. lost at stake for both candidates. according to our latest poll which is an average of five national polls it is tight race among likely voters the president has 49%, mitt romney at 46%. now both men in past moments wished they could have a do over. we recall a heated exchange between hillary clinton and president obama back in 2008's debate in south carolina. >> while i was working on those streets watching those folks see their jobs shipped overseas you were a corporate lawyer sitting on the board of walmart. i was fighting these fights. i was fighting these fights. knives fighting against those ideas when you were
unemployment rate, would actually favor the challenger, mitt romney. true? >> well, you would think so in conventional wisdom, it would certainly say so. but if you look at the polls throughout the summer really but even most recently in september, most of them do lean president obama's way, and so i think there's a question in nevada as to whether voters believe that mitt romney's got a better plan for fixing what ails nevada than simply staying the course with president obama. greg greg as i understand it, the demographics favor the president. is he counting on hispanic votes to carry him through? >> absolutely. that's a big part of the picture here. hispanics now make up about 27 percent of the population in nevada. we've really seen those numbers grow over the past ten years according to the census. turnout expected to be anywhere from 15-17%, and if the democrats can turn out hispanics in those higher numbers and hispanics in nevada by most polls' estimation are leaning towards the president by about 70%, that'll definitely be a key to the win here. gregg: and there's a sizable mo

[ mitt romney ] there are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what... who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a respononsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it... and they will vote for this spresident no matter what... anand so my job is not to wory about those people. i'll never convince them they suld take personal responsibility and care for their lives.

seven times the audience of the highest rated 2012 republican primary debate. think about that. seven times. past debates show romney and obama have to worry about cut away shots that are less than flattering. in the past both candidates have come across as irritable, patronizing or disengaged. this was chris christie's advice to the candidates yesterday. >> what you do is go out and be yourself. and people either like it or don't. if they don't, they are going to vote for somebody else. not a tragedy. no one dies. >> finally speaking of debates, there was a barn burner last night in massachusetts where scott brown and democratic challenger elizabeth warren faced off in a debate. moderated by nbc's david gregory. it was tense from the outset. >> if you're going to comment on my record, i would at least have you refer to it -- excuse me. i'm not a student in your classroom. please let me respond, okay? >> that was an echo of a quip brown used in 2010 when he told martha kwaurkly i'm not in your courtroom, i'm not a defendant. i the two fought over whether elizabeth warren used her nati

romney has set out in terms of revenue, distribution, tax rates, base broadening -- i'm sure i am forgetting something else. the takeaway message of our study is that something will have to give. something in terms of a compromise in terms to accomplish these various goals. that is something you have seen folks who are close advisers to the romney campaign mentioned in recent weeks. one of their most prominent economic advisers said if it was not going to be possible to pay for the rate cut and accomplish the governor pasquale's, one way of bending on this would be to do lower rate cuts. >> do you want to tackle the second half of the question? >> actually, there was some other things and acted in the 2001 or 2006 timeframe and one that comes to mind is the prescription drug benefit in 2003. since we are having a fiscal discussion, i feel compelled to note that the 2003 health expansion was deficit-financed while the 2009 legislation was paid for it. >> other questions? >> patrick lecher -- patrick lester -- as think this was referred to indirectly but nobody said it explicitly --
will be in two years? no. if he can't, no one can. that's why ally has a raise your rate cd. ally bank. your money needs an ally. >>> "outfront," our second story, liar, liar. according to the romney campaign, that is the president's strategy. >> the president does a very good job of trying to mislead and distort and distract so he can win this thing by default. >> stop lying, m president. >> i think the challenge i'll have is that the president tends to how shall i say it? say things that aren't true. >> you've got to love chris christie. say things that aren't true, mislead. sometimes, if you're going to call someone a liar, you can just call them a liar. this is a preview of what we're going to be hearing from mitt romney on wednesday. that's what some say. will it happen and will that attack work? ryan epsilon and roland martin are both here. good to see you both. is that what's happening? is he going to come out, ryan, and say, look, there you go. that famous there you go again. there's another lie or no? >> i think it's unpredictable. i'm not sure if the debate is the right place to do
to that. the first half. lowering the tax rates. does that cost $5 trillion? >> no. >> the master of the power point was having a hard time making a point. let's break down what paul ryan is actually saying here. romney and ryan will give $5 trillion in tax breaks to the wealthiest americans. subtract an unspecified amount of money of unnamed deductions. somehow you're going to get a revenue neutral tax plan. it's a plan so bogus not even a fox news host can understand it. >> you haven't given me the math. >> i don't have the -- it would take me too long to go through the math. >> paul ryan, paul ryan, if you want to be a heartbeat away from the presidency, you're going to have to explain your plans to the american people. take all the time you want. especially here on "the ed show." you guys have been complaining about media fairness preponderance let's talk it over. today paul ryan told a radio host in milwaukee why he wouldn't give chris wallace the math. >> you know, i like chris. i didn't want to get into all of the math of this because everybody would start changing the chan

mr. romney has to tell the world how will he grow america's economy compared to the miserable rate of growth that we've had for the last three and a half years. >> reporter: it's going to be an interesting debate tomorrow night. thank you so much. the president and governor romney may be taking time off the campaign trail today for debate practice but the vice presidental candidates are not. vice president joe biden spoke to voters in charlotte, north carolina a short time ago about the concerns he has over his opponent's plan for medicare, while at wong man's paul ryan's event in iowa today things took an emotional term when a veteran asked him about his social security benefits and why the government taxes the only source of income for a man who dedicated his life to defending his country. >> i served in the air force in 65 straight out of high school, and i learned in the military -- [applause] >> -- the skills that i had to take me through life. i served in grenada, and i served in iran, and i live off of social security. i live off a thousand dollars a month, and i cannot unde
